Can you believe that the microwave was given to us 30 years ago? Since then the clever appliance has been the go to device to reheat meals and lessen time in the kitchen.

While young folks use it to make popcorn, oatmeal, hot chocolate and other things, we're using it wrong to reheat food.  See, microwaves don't cook food evenly and that means bacteria in reheated food will survive.

Hard boiled eggs, breast milk, processed meat, rice, and chicken.  

Are you guilty of putting these foods in the microwave?
